For victims of a car accident, including a rear-end collision, a type of soft tissue injury known as whiplash can cause you pain for weeks or even months after the initial accident. But exactly how long after the accident can you discover symptoms?
How Long Should I Worry About Whiplash?
For most victims of whiplash, the onset of symptoms will be near-immediate. This can lead to a limiting of your range of movement and cause stiffness and pain in your neck. Some will also find that symptoms can develop within 24 hours after the accident occurs, with an even smaller percentage having symptoms show up days after the event. Either way, for those afflicted, retaining the services of a personal injury lawyer might end up being the right move.
Pain and Suffering
While symptoms of whiplash generally clear up about a week after their onset, some people can end up with chronic issues that continue to manifest for months or even years after the initial accident. This can lead to a reduced quality of life and cause mental and financial stress on the victim. With help from Robert J. DeBry & Associates, we can help you hold those responsible to account.
